How to import video
You can add media to your projects by two basic methods: capturing from tape and importing files from other types
of storage.
•
Capturing typically involves recording video and audio directly to a hard-drive location from either a
videotape playing in real time or a live video source.
•
Importing typically involves copying video, audio, or still images to a hard-drive location from a memory
card, thumb drive, DVD, CD, or another hard drive location.
Whether you add media to your project by importing or capturing, each file is represented in Adobe Premiere
Elements by its own thumbnail in the Project view in the Tasks panel. Each of these representations is called a clip.
Clips, whether they contain audio, video, or still images, are the building blocks of your movies.
Common sources of media files
Adobe Premiere Elements enables you to add video, audio, graphics, and still images to your project from numerous
sources. In the Get Media view in the Tasks panel, various buttons let you access the following items:
•
Camcorders
•
Digital cameras
•
Web cams
•
DVDs and CDs
•
Cell phones
•
PC files and folders
File types you can import
Your choice of footage to include in your movie is not limited to the clips you capture. You can use other image,
video, and audio files that reside on your computer. You only need to add them to your Adobe Premiere Elements
project to begin working with them. In some cases, added files can retain a link to the Adobe application in which
they were created. This allows you to open the file’s original application from within Adobe Premiere Elements,
make changes, and immediately see the results in Adobe Premiere Elements.
Except as noted, you can import the following file types by using the Get Media view in the Tasks panel. Added
files are visible in the Project view in the Tasks panel.
Video file types
•
AVI Movie (.avi)
•
Flash (.swf)
•

•

•
QuickTime Movie (.mov, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m4a, .m4v)

Note: To import video from mobile phones (.3gp and .mp4), you must have the most recent version of QuickTime
installed on your computer.
Adding files from tape camcorders
You add clips from camcorders (tape devices) by capturing them. In the Capture dialog box you control the device
(rewind, play, and advance), preview the video, and capture clips. The dialog box also enables you to specify how
Premiere Elements manages the clips once they are captured. For example, you can choose to have clips split by
time code, automatically analyzed, and added to the Timeline.

To capture clips from a camcorder
1. Connect the media by doing one of the following:
•
Connect the camcorder or HD camcorder to your
computer by connecting a cable to the USB 2.0 port
or 1394 (Firewire) port.
•
Consult the owner’s manual for your computer for
details on these and other options.
2. Turn on the camcorder and set it to playback mode,
which may be labeled either VTR, VCR, or Play. You
can also keep it in recording mode.

Adding files from DVDs, digital cameras, mobile phones, non-tape camcorders,
and other devices
Many types of devices other than digital video camcorders record video and store still-image files. Using the Media
Downloader feature (Figure 4), you can import these files from DVD camcorders and mobile devices and from
removable media such as DVDs, memory cards, multimedia cards, and memory sticks. Adobe Premiere Elements
copies these files to the hard drive location you specify and adds them to the Project view in the Tasks panel.

6. In the Save Options area (upper-right corner of the
dialog box), do one of the following to specify a
location for the saved files:
•
To save files to the default Adobe folder in the My
Videos folder, leave the location as it appears in the
dialog box.
•
To specify a different location, click Browse and
choose a folder or click Make New Folder to create
and name a new folder.
•
To create and name a new folder, click the Create
Subfolder(s) pop-up menu, and choose one of the
options for naming the subfolder.
•
To rename the files in the folder consistently, click
the Rename Files pop-up menu and choose one of
the options for naming the files. The filename
defaults to the folder name you enter. When the
files are added to the folder and the Project view in
the Tasks panel, the filenames are incremented by
001. For example, if you enter summer as a custom
name, the filenames are changed to summer001.vob,
summer002.vob, and so on.
7. To show or hide specific file types, click the Images
button, Video button, or Audio button to the right of
Show in the upper-left area.
8. Select files to add to the project.
Figure 8 Check All and UnCheck All buttons
Figure 9 Apply Metadata section of the Media
Downloader dialog box
A check mark below the file’s thumbnail indicates the
file is selected. By default, all files are selected. Click a
check box to remove the check mark and exclude a file.
You can also select or deselect all files by using the
Check All button or the UnCheck All button (Figure 8).
9. Under Apply Metadata, fill in the Author and Copyright
boxes, if you wish (Figure 9).
If you do not see these boxes, click the triangle next to
Apply Metadata.
10. Click Get Media.
You can click Cancel in the Progress dialog box at any
time to stop the process.
Note: If you don’t intend to use all the files you add, you can
delete them from the Project view in the Tasks panel.
Deleting files from the Tasks panel doesn’t delete them from
your hard drive. This practice is recommended for large
VOB files.
